MS Access ODBC connection to SQL 2008 security issues

I copied a table in SQL inphyinv  to zinphyinv and then I ran a query that would allow me to add records to zinphyinv and it worked.   I tried to update one of the fields in zinphyinv and it said the "record set was not updateable".    I tried to update the same record in inphyinv for the same field and I was able to update it.    Why is it stopping me from updating the new field in the new table? It let me add records to zinphyinv.

Is your primary key intact on the copied table?
Did you commit/refresh the record set?  Seems like you add then update the same record it doesn't know yet that the row exists.

Check if there is a bit field set to not null without default value.
If this is the case update the field with default value 0 where is null.

If you do have the primary key set on the server table and linked, you may be missing a field in the table of data type Timestamp. This should be linked as well though you will never use it as it is read-only and only for use by the server and the ODBC driver.
